If you follow me on Instagram, I’ve been posting up a STORM of holiday eats and treats, from Peking duck dinners to latke parties to prime rib feasts for Christmas. There are too many for me to write up, so check my Highlights for Holiday! and look for the menorah for brisket and more. In tablehopper a couple weeks ago, I mentioned a bunch of items as well, including gelato-stuffed panettone. Uh huh. Here are a few more places to look for holiday meals and things:
The Feastin platform, which I have mentioned here before, supports a bunch of restaurant partners who are offering special holiday feasts for delivery, including a Noche Buena kamayan feast from Pinoy Heritage, a whole snow crab dinner from Alamar Oakland, and more.
What I especially love is for every single Feastin order during the month of December (through December 24th), Feastin will donate a meal box to feed a family of four, including a whole chicken, two pounds of potatoes, two pounds of carrots, and a selection of fresh fruit (current food bank partners include Alameda County Food Bank, Redwood Empire Food Bank, and Second Harvest Silicon Valley). You can purchase additional meal boxes for families in need for just $5 each. Be sure to place your order this week! Pick up some uni from ABS Seafood while you’re at it, you deserve it.
I know a bunch of us have some messed-up holidays happening, but it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t eat like the king or kweeeeen you are. Are you a good home cook? Check out this Holiday Feast for Dining Solo from Four Star Seafood & Provisions (a local purveyor founded by local chefs) that you can cook up: you get half a Dungeness crab, 12 oz. Flannery dry-aged ribeye steak, 1 bunch of organic carrots, 0.5 lb. king oyster mushrooms, plum mostarda, and a Petit Pot dark chocolate pudding, which I love; ($61). If there are a few of you, check out this cioppino kit ($80)! Free delivery throughout the Bay Area.
